We are looking for computers people are willing to donate so we can get them to people stuck at home, especially families with kids in school. If you can donate, please fill out our form and we will arrange safe pickup.
We will wipe any remaining data from the machine, then install a clean and current OS. Machines will come complete with an open source/free software internet browser, productivity suite, and antivirus. We are working with mutual aid groups and charities around the state.
When you donate, please place all items into a tied plastic bag, a trash bag will do, with the date, your name and phone number clearly written upon the bag. Donated equipment will be collected by a volunteer of the Pirate Party. To minimize the risk of contamination, we will hold the bagged computer for 5 days.
We will make any hardware repairs needed and wipe any remaining data on the machine. We will install a clean and current OS as well as an open source/free software internet browser, productivity suite, and antivirus.
We will include a brief document on the desktop explaining the included software, as well as information on who we are and how to contact us for assistance. We are looking at offering bimonthly video conferences for new users who might be having trouble with their new system.
